In my personal opinion, the Keiko Raca Limited edition series Kimono is the best in its class! Although the product is made for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition, it could easily be worn for any martial arts purpose. The lightweight, durabable fabric top is cut from one solid peice of double weaved 100% cotton, eliminating the average seem tears found in other brands of kimonos. The pants are bar-none the best I have ever worn! All seems are hidden on the inside of the thigh reducing the chance of tearing or ripping. The waist is tied by a rope draw string making them easy to fasten and keeps them from getting tangeled in the washer/drying machine. I didn't have to worry about any shrinking of the kimono either becuase Keiko Raca Sports Pre-shrinks all of their kimonos. Training with the kimono was very comfortable aswell. It was lightweight, breathed well and the fabric remained soft wash after wash. Price wise, this kimono stood out over all others for a low retail cost of 129.99 USD. All in all the Keiko Raca Limited edition series kimono is the "biggest bang for your buck" on the market!
